Interesting mystery, but didn't like the ending
I really enjoyed the earlier mystery parts of this story, but the ending included such bleak and hopeless occurrences and outcomes that made me like the story less. Listen, I DON'T need a happy ending, but the whole idea of what was going on in the story was distressing, and the ending was a bit over the top for my taste. Carolin did a good job reading the story. For the good mystery of the meaning of the bronze hand and for Carolyn's reading, I will ignore that the ending was not to my taste. (You can't please everyone all of the time!)

AKG is one of my favorites...
I usually love AKG stories; she writes a mean mystery novel. This one has a bit of a sad ending, and I would have loved a bit more resolution with it, but it is still a good mystery. I'd give the story a 4.
The reader did an excellent job, and the recordings were excellent - 5 star reader.
